  • The list of plans for Goal Plan Permissions in Role Based Permissions (RBP) has duplicate plans

  • Active objective or goal plan is missing from drop-down in the Goals tab.

The list of plans in the Permission Roles tool and in the Goals tab uses the Plan Template Names for your locale and may be different from the default name.


If you are encountering this issue, please check by going to:

  1. Admin Center > Manage Templates > Goals / Objectives tab
  2. Select the appropriate goal plan
  3. Go to the "General Settings" tab
  4. From the Change Language drop-down, select the language that matches your default locale (for example English US)
  5. Check to make sure the desired name is entered for your locale 

When copying a goal plan, change the localization of the goal plan name in Admin Center, not just the default name.

  • To fix this, update the name for your language/locale.
  • It is reccommended the name be updated for all languages in your instance.
  • The change will also reflect on the XML and is dynamic.
